But seriously folks, I found it very amusing that the GD played this song 33 times before they retired it- and exactly 33 more times when they brought it out of retirement.

I love the song, and would like your favorite version pre retirement- I have those that were posted before from prior posts- but feel free to repeat them-

More importantly, and I am counting on you 90's experts to help me out- are there any versions from 92-95 worth listening to?

For those waiting to hear from me on other matters I am going to my hotmail now- sorry for the delays- my "day" job is killing me.

I think all the late 73 HCSS are great, especially December.
One other worth mentioning is the 4-2-73 Boston which is the only one I know of that is follwed by an extended jam>space.
All other known version have a clean cut ending.

Hands down my fav is 2-15-73. MUCH better than the one Dick was so enamored by ( imo ) to base the whole first DP around it.

Don't like what they did with it when they brought it back.

Breakout in Phoenix '92 is tremendous. Clocks in at about 9 mins and had a ton of energy not to mention a bonus jam from Jerry. Best version I heard post retirement. Ironically the polishsed versions after this were stale and usually were 5 or 6 mins long. The Vegas show in 93 is probably the worst version I heard. Be nice if they were in the same key.

How they pulled off the national anthem at candlestick one year is still a mystery.

i cant think of ANY 92-95 version worth listening too. sorry to say - the vocals just killed the song and the jams were nothing like the earlier versions (where the vocals were nothing to write home about either). that amost should have been a purely instrumental song (i know i know, it really wouldn't have worked like that, but c'mon - they really sucked singing it - Donna was - gulp - the only one that helped)

Hey Liam - just bustin ya earlier on the ELP - I know we are all busy - no rush man, seriously!!!! take your time - i know it is coming :) thank you :)
